Dunkin’ Opens First Café in Costa Rica, Signaling Regional Expansion

Heredia, Costa Rica — Dunkin’, the renowned American coffee and donut chain, is set to open its first Costa Rican café in Heredia this July. This marks a significant step in the brand’s expansion across Latin America, aiming to strengthen its leadership in the region.

The Heredia location is just the beginning, with plans to open an additional seven locations throughout 2024. This ambitious expansion underscores Costa Rica’s growing appeal as a hub for international brands seeking to tap into Central American markets.

AR Holdings, the franchise operator for Dunkin’ in Costa Rica, has already started recruiting staff for the new cafés, offering competitive salaries and benefits. This move is expected to generate significant employment, further bolstering the local economy.

We are excited to begin the countdown for Dunkin’s arrival in our country. This opening not only introduces a globally recognized brand to Costa Rica but also creates new job opportunities that will contribute to local economic development. AR Holdings is committed to delivering the quality, innovation, and customer service that Dunkin’ is famous for. We are confident that the Costa Rican market will embrace Dunkin’s unique flavors and exceptional service, making it a resounding success.

Customers will be able to enjoy these offerings in-store, take them to go, or have them delivered to their doorstep, ensuring convenience for every type of customer.

The arrival of Dunkin’ is part of a broader trend of international brands setting up shop in Costa Rica. The country’s strategic location, stable economy, and growing middle class make it an attractive destination for global businesses looking to establish a foothold in Latin America.
